Spring Time in Northwest Arkansas
Spring has officially sprung in Northwest Arkansas and we are looking forward to taking advantage of the numerous outdoor activities in the area. Northwest Arkansas has acquired many acclamations from national sources such as a “Disneyland for bikers” and an “Adventure Paradise.” Now that warmer weather is on its way, make some plans with family or friends to get out and experience the beauty of Northwest Arkansas!
Slaughter Pen Trail
The biking scene in Bentonville is more like a lifestyle than a hobby. With more than 300 miles of trails in Northwest Arkansas, there are plenty of places to explore and work on your skills. The Slaughter Pen Trail is worth noting because it spans 40 miles ranging in difficulty from beginners to expert.
Bentonville Farmers Market
Hosted by Downtown Bentonville Inc., the Bentonville Famers Market has grown to the point that it received national recognition from Garden and Health in “10 Best Unexpected Farmers Markets in the U.S.” The season starts April 10th with local goods and produce available every Saturday from 7:30am-1:00pm.
Fishing, hiking, biking, running, and more can all be done at the Lake Atalanta park. In addition to the 3-mile paved trail, there are 10 miles of hiking and off-road trails surrounding the lake. Spring is the perfect time to enjoy this park because of the endless uses and beautiful scenery.
Railyard Bike Park
Located right outside of Downtown Rogers, the Railyard Bike Park is the perfect place to bring your family and enjoy the outdoors. This public bike park has eight jump lines ranging from beginner to expert levels and is open from 6:00am-10:00pm.
